Rockburger Salad with Sesame Croutons  Ingredients:

  • 2 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. French mustard
  • ½ tsp. celery salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 4 oz. Roquefort or other blue cheese
  • 1 large sesame seed bread loaf
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil, preferably Spanish
  • 1 small iceberg lettuce
  • 2 oz. arugula or watercress
  • ½ cup French Dressing
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 large scallions

Cooking Instructions:

  • Place the ground beef, egg, onion, mustard, celery salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Combine thoroughly.  Divide the mixture into 16 portions, each weighing about 2 oz.
  • Flatten the pieces between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper to form 5 in rounds.
  • Place ½ oz. of the cheese on 8 of the thin burgers. Sandwich with remainder and press the edges firmly. Store between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper and chill until ready to cook.
  • To make the sesame croutons, preheat the broiler to a moderate temperature. Remove the sesame crust from the bread, then cut the crust into short fingers. Brush with olive oil and toast evenly for 10-15 minutes.
  • Season the burgers and broil for 10 minutes, turning once.
  • Wash the salad leaves and spin dry. Toss with the dressing, then distribute between 4 large plates. Place 2 of the rockbburgers in the center of each plate and arrange the tomatoes, scallions, and sesame croutons around the edge.

COOK’S TIP : If you’re planning ahead, it’s a good idea to freeze the filled burgers between pieces of waxed paper. They will keep the freezer for up to 8 weeks.

  1. Somehow the name of the burger is not appetizing for me 🙂 But after looking at the pictures, it’s a different story
